    My daughter who has Celiac had fish and chips and onion stings for the first time ever!! The fried calamari was also amazing! They use chick pea flour to fry everything so all fried food is gluten free. She had a fried food frenzy which she never has had in her entire life and loved it!! The waiter was so kind and knowledgeable it was awesome!!!

    Super yummy. I have found legal seafood to be universally wonderful and taking celiac and food allergies seriously. I was in a rush but was quickly provided with super yummy fried shrimp and fries all GF to go. Before my international flight this was a must!

    Happy with my visit. I had a crabmeat sandwich (because it was $10 cheaper than a lobster sandwich). It came on a soft, warm, flaky GF bun. I'm told the fries are safe, but I think they serve some other breaded and fried things. Regular menu is clearly marked with things that are or can be made GF. Much appreciated! Many options. Sandwiches are reasonably priced . (Most are $15-25). Some reviewer said the whole kitchen is GF. That's not true.

    Great service!! The chef came out and assured us they took every precaution they could! The fryer does not have gluten items Fried in it so you can have the French fries or the onion strings! I had the grilled shrimp, French fries and polenta no problems! (And some of my husbands onion strings - they made his meal gf too so that I could have some of his!)

    It was so good to eat out at a restaurant where they care about their seafood AND patrons with allergies! I had the first fried seafood since being diagnosed celiac. And it was excellent! The wait staff was exceptional and they sympathetically understood celiac disease! We WILL find a way to eat there again!

    I ate lunch there and told them multiple times to inform the kitchen about gluten free. (Celiac/severe gluten “allergy “). I got very sick almost immediately after eating.

    Today I sat at the bar at Legal Sea Foods and was seriously impressed by all the attention paid to allergies. “Allergy to: dairy, mussels, gluten, nuts...” each were announced to the kitchen staff clearly, and managers delivered all of the allergy dishes personally. As a solo traveler with celiac, I’m not a big fan of eating in restaurants. Legal is the exception. It’s pricey, and I can never finish the large portions, but it is well worth it for the guarantee of a safe meal while traveling! Also: this branch had super soft rolls to start out your meal! I almost questioned whether or not they were really GF because they tasted so good!

    Wife has went to many different legal seafoods and even came here once before and never got sick. the manager even came out with food and made sure it was gluten free. The last time we went here for her birthday and she has gotten very sick. The manager didnt bring out the food this time and accidently overcharged us twice. Never again.

    Picked this spot based on the recommendations on this app. They had great choices for seafood that were gluten free. Wish the crab cakes could be made GF but alas they need to be held together by an agent. Wasn’t sick afterwards.

    The GF fried calamari was great. They also had the option of GF popcorn shrimp, fish and chips and other items that typically aren’t GF. They served hot GF bread. And everything was clearly marked on the menu. Our server was delightful and the staff was really fun and friendly.

Our 7 year old celiac enjoyed the gf bread, chicken fingers and French fries this time. We have been consistently impressed with this restaurant after a number of visits.

    Legal Seafood always goes the extra mile and is very cautious about cross contamination. The new menu now shows GF options rather than separate menus. I always enjoy starting with a bowl of GF light clam chowder. Today I had the seafood casserole with shrimp and scallops. Everything was perfect. Love this place!

    its called Legal Harborside. Took my 6 year old celiac son there tonight. I'm not sure what glutened him (he had a hamburger on gf bun, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob and GF bread brought out before the meal and soft serve ice cream) but he is so sick right now, he was definitely glutened at this place. We will not be back. I wish there was an option to give zero stars.

    Exceptional! For Celiac sufferers, I cannot imagine a better experience. GF options are marked on the menu and extensive. They have a dedicated GF frier, so you can even enjoy fish and chips or fried clams in GF batter. They also have GF rolls. Our non-GF friends had their food brought out by our server, but all the GF items were brought out by a manager to ensure no cross contamination. Legal really goes above and beyond to cater to GF diners. We would highly recommend to GF locals like ourselves or tourists looking for fresh New England seafood without the risk of gluten cross contamination.
